I put out the call last week for people to share about the local food and sustainability phenomenon from their perspective. I patterned the invite after one I made this summer to see a view from your garden. I explained that I'm more interested in personal stories than I am debates about carbon emission etc. I suspect that a large part of the wave of attention on local food, etc. has a very personal dimension, a symptom of deep longings in the personal space of our lives.
So the first round of responses are in. Keep them coming by emailing me at goody2230(at)gmail.com or replyin in the comments section.
